Our Lead Pastor.

Rev Scott Gallimore

Scott was called into the ministry while attending Piney Grove UMC with his wife, Rita, in 1992. The Walk to Emmaus was an instrumental means of grace in clarifying that call. As a former professional jockey at Oaklawn Park and throughout the midwest, Scott’s testimony includes how God led him from the “Pasture to the Pastor.” As a foundation for counseling Scott was a psychology major at Henderson State University and completed his ministry preparation by serving churches in Kentucky while completing a Master of Divinity at Asbury Theological Seminary. Rita and Scott homeschooled their four children Bethany (ASU), Samuel (LA Tech), Rachael (UCA) and Jordan (National Park Community College). Outside of church activities, you may find the Gallimore family camping, hiking, boating or riding horses at their Royal Gold Ranch.
